Fitness competitions

Hi, I’d like to participate in a fitness competition but I don’t know where to start. Any suggestions?

That is a great question! I remember being totally overwhelmed when I first made that decision. First, I would recommend joining some different Facebook groups and add pages so you can see what people are saying about the different organizations. I would also look at the organizations' previous shows to see what ‘look’ most fits with your body and your goals. There are many different categories such as; bikini, figure, fitness model, physique, fitness and bodybuilding. I would also recommend hiring a coach, especially for posing, who is experienced in that organization. Here are some organizations that I am familiar with:


You can also find a list on and here is a great link to get you started:

Find a coach who is reasonable and can train you long distance. They can also help guide you in which show to do and all the prep requirements.

Feel free to add me on Facebook also! Good luck on this exciting journey! ;)
